I just posted about what I think might be a fix in another thread.

This definitely appears to be a heat issue.

I've spoken with Sanyo Service twice regarding this issue. The first time I was told that the solution was to power the unit off for 1 hour, and that it was something that could be serviced. The second time I called, when I asked what the service procedure was, I was told they don't know what causes the problem. Hmm...

In any case, I managed to get the case open. After removing the faceplate, take out the four screws in the front. Using a small screwdriver / pry tool, pop the case off at the FM out port. BE CAREFUL! The FM transmitter is soldered to the front of the case, so don't move it around too much or you'll lose that nice, strong FM transmitter. Once you locate the connection for the FM transmitter (a small wire), you can open the case such that the two halves lay next to one another.

Once inside, you'll see another metal box that contains what I believe is the main chipset (Agere). More screws here. Once you take the screws out, you can lift off the metal case. Here's where I suspect the problem lies. There is a cheap heatsink pad in here that, I suspect, over the years has degraded to the point where it no longer conducts well. I cleaned the top of the chip with IPA and put some new thermal compound inside. I have not yet removed the pad as I did not have an appropriate thickness piece of something else that I could use to replace it. I then reversed the process to put the case together.

My radio is still funny, but it seems to work better now. Since the weather is now cooler, when I have problems with it, I hold it out the window or in front of the air conditioner and it comes back after a couple of minutes. I also disabled the blue LEDs so that the heating inside the unit is minimized. It conceivable that there's a bad solder somewhere, but I didn't see anything that stood out. If I continue to have issues, I plan to go back in at somepont and remove the pad, replacing it with something else (copper foil? another pad?), but until then, I'm still in business, even if somewhat diminished capability. I've got a lifetime subscription that I'm fighting to avoid a transfer on, at least for a little while...

Try using the audio out jack to see if you are getting any sound (you can use earbuds to check). If you get sound this way, your transmitter is probably shot. Mine went out about 2 years ago on this unit, and I am using a tape deck adapter to get sound. These are easy to find and only run about $10 and work fine.

It sounds like the unit is malfunctioning. I think I had display problems with my first Sanyo CRSR-10 radio. At that time, it was still under warranty, so I contacted Sanyo and had it replaced.

The new radio lasted a few months, but it eventually died with another problem -- it just loops the startup sequence (Sirius logo + beep) and never loads up to the tuner interface. Unfortunately, Sanyo only honors the warranty period of the original radio and since it had been over a year since I purchased the first radio, they would not replace the second malfunctioning radio.

If you explain your situation to Sirius, I'm sure they will transfer your subscription to a new radio -- it's relatively easy for them to do it. I think they just want to discourage frivolous subscription transfers (and hacking) but if you convince them that your old radio is dead, they should be able to do it.

There might be a diagram but I haven't seen any belt fitting diagrams at all, merely the odd exploded view. Replacing cassette belts is as much fun as a jigsaw puzzle - you keep removing screws and parts until you can fit the belt and then you reverse the process...

Hi Paula, check the HDMI input, on the Sanyo TV, where the cable box is connected, it is assumed that the channels are loaded in said box
